Thermostat stuck in engine block!

Hi guys. Im in the process of changing my thermostat because I'm sure its stuck open (car only blows cold air on the move) Anyway, ive removed the thermostat housing after draining the radiator (not the engine block) to save time, and the thermostat is refusing to budge. Any tips on how to remove this? I'll drain the engine block if needs be if someone can tell me where the engine drain plug is?! Its a right-hand drive bmw 323i 1997 E36. Bearing in mind the coolant is only 2 months old so I'm not too bothered if it gets mixed.

Cheers guys.
